Who can be Saved?.....
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

       Who can be Saved?.....

It’s not at first what eyes can see

Neither by snares is caught

But like the wind it comes quite free

Once Jesus’ face we’ve sought


Ordained to one by Heaven’s grace

God’s Gift through Christ on high

Salvation scans the human race

Searching for you and I


Through planted Seed within the heart

Heaven sets faith alight

Showing the need from sin to part

For life to be in sight


But will we part from what we love?

What here on earth we prize?

Is trust the way to Christ above?

One’s faith enough to rise


Who guarantees what can be won?

What none on earth can give?

What assurance has Christ God’s Son?

That man through faith will live?


Salvation’s not a passing trend

God gives His grace to stay

The smallest child will comprehend

When Heaven blows our way


Wisdom; the bride may take to hand

When gold from Christ she’s bought

She’ll learn in truth to understand

Complacence counts to nought


We’ll end up nowhere on our own

Except the pit of hell

While thirst within man’s heart of stone

May cause to seek life’s Well.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
